MICRO-NEEDLING

THE BENEFITS OF MICRO-NEEDLING

Skin Needling with a dermapen is a relatively simple way to target skin concerns such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, cellulite or stretch marks. When the ultra-fine skin-needling pen passes over the skin it triggers the skin’s natural healing response, which includes stimulating new collagen production that assists a firmer, tighter looking skin with diminished lines and wrinkles. The pen needles are more like acupuncture needles in their size so their is no injury to the skin as you would see with a traditional needle.

FACIAL MICRO NEEDLING

The skin needling treatment stimulates a natural healing response and Shand uses LED treatments in conjunction with micro-needling to get even better results. The LED light treatments contain colours of light that are known to enhance recovery processes going on in the skin. Red and blue for example are very good for stimulating circulation and increasing metabolic activity.

When combined with your skin care products everything works together to create an effect that is greater than the sum of the individual parts.

WHEN DOES COLLAGEN PRODUCTION START?

Once the collagen production is stimulated you can continue to get improvements for up to 30-60 days. Collagen production will start soon after your treatment and within 4 weeks you should notice a visible difference.

WHAT IS COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY?

Micro-Skin Needling, also referred to as dermapen collagen induction therapy.

The treatment stimulates the body’s own collagen production to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, loose skin and scarring (acne, chicken pox, surgical or accidental scarring). Our medical grade, electronic dermastamp device uses super fine sterile needles which creates hundreds of microscopic channels into the skin at controlled depths from 0.25mm to 1mm.

Treatment is comfortable and causes little downtime

HOW DOES  SKIN NEEDLING WORK ?

Skin Needling uses a sterile dermapen (9-12 needles) which are very fine and can be of lengths from 0.1mm to 2mm long

The dermapen is passed across the skin causing a numerous micro-punctures to the layers of the skin, these stimulate the body to produce its own collagen.

Clinical studies show that there is a 400% increase in the production of healthy, elastic classes of collagen.

The eventual process results in tighter skin, less lines and wrinkles with a softening and reduction in scarring. The skin also becomes thicker.

Mainly used on the face, this procedure can be carried out anywhere on the body, such as on stretch marks, surgical or traumatic scars and is effective on all skin types.

A home use dermaroller – short needles – can be beneficial for several months following  “in clinic” treatments in conjunction with an appropriate skincare regime to both promote and maintain rejuvenation results.

The needles on our medical rollers used for our “in-clinic” treatments reach the papillary dermal layer of the skin. This is where both elastin and collagen fibres are to be found (see illustration).

Cosmetic rollers (used for home use), however, only penetrate to a low level in the skin (epidermis) where they assist in the absorbing of topical ingredients. As soon as the skin heals, these tiny punctures close up and become invisible very quickly.

Skin preparation the application of vitamin A and C creams may be recommended for up to 4 weeks prior to the start of the treatments.

Treatment sessions with medical grade rollers take between 10 – 20 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. Pain should be minimal due to the application of the numbing cream ; however you may still feel some discomfort. The skin will be pink or red in appearance following treatment, with some minor bleeding and bruising possible, depending on the length of needle used for your treatment.

Recovery may take 24 hours or up to a few days; most people should however be able to return to work the following day. Potential complications include minor flaking or dryness of the skin, with scab formation in rare cases. Hyperpigmentation is a very rare occurrence and usually clears up after a month. If you are prone to cold sores, you might experience a flare-up after treatment. (We recommend you seek a prescription for your usual cold sore treatment from your GP before treatment)

Results
It can take between 4 – 8 weeks before visible signs of skin regeneration are seen and the process will continue over the following months, with a gradual improvement.

Even after a single treatment there can be a noticeable improvement, but we recommend a programme of six treatments every four to six weeks in order to achieve the most optimal results. The specific number of sessions required will depend on the area being treated and the severity of the problem, as well as the level of natural response from the clients body
